Cracked Fairings-repair, upgrade or replace?
So, I'm a fairly new rider and my '11 KLR650 is my first bike. And, as new riders are wont to do, I've laid it down in the gravel a few times and now the front fairings on both side of the tank have a pretty bad crack in it.
Even though it's actually not super noticable, and doesn't affect performance at all, I'd like to fix it but I'm not sure how to go about it.
I tried searching for replacement fairings, but everything I found was either a used one that was in as bad a shape as what I already had. And I didn't have any luck finding an aftermarket one of any description.
Am I just looking in the wrong place for new plastics? Or is my best bet to just sand the whole thing down, pop the cracks back into place and repair them with some bondo and repaint the whole thing?
